Data is ever becoming a factor which influences which carrier we choose to go with and today, Vodafone is heeding the calls of folks who just need more with the introduction of their new $130 Red plan.

Starting from Wednesday September 9 — which at time of writing is tomorrow — the carrier will launch the new $130 Red plan with 15GB data per month over 24 months. As a bonus to new customers until November 3, Vodafone will bump up this already impressive figure to a total 20GB instead.

Aside from all that data, Vodafone's $130 Red plan adds unlimited standard national calls and texts, but being as it's the highest tier plan available on the telco, it will ...

Amazon’s reportedly readying a 6-inch tablet with a $50 price tag

Posted: 07 Sep 2015 02:25 PM PDT

Cheap Android tablets have been a thing for years now, but the problem with most of 'em is that, well, they tend to suck. Amazon apparently hopes to change that later this year.

The Wall Street Journal claims that Amazon is planning to launch a 6-inch tablet that'll cost just $50. The company reportedly outsourced a lot of the tablet's development to overseas companies like Shanghai Huaqin Telecom Technology Co. and Compal Communications Inc. in order to help get its price down.

In terms of specs, the only detail included in today's report is that the device will include a mono speaker. Considering that this is Amazon we're talking about, it seems like a safe bet that Amazon's Android-based Fire OS will power the device.

Last year we saw Amazon introduce a 6-inch Fire tablet that was priced at $100, which is a reasonable price for a small Android tablet from a big-name company like Amazon. A $50 6-inch tablet could be big for Amazon, though, giving consumers a super-cheap slate to buy during the holiday season. It could be interesting for folks not looking for a gift, too, because $50 for a tablet would probably an impulse buy for a lot of people.

Is This Nokia’s Upcoming Android Device?

Posted: 07 Sep 2015 09:29 AM PDT

Nokia C1 - 2 Nokia C1

Nokia has made it no secret that they plan to return to the smartphone market and now  we may have a look at their first device!  Romanian site mobilissimo.ro recently posted a couple of photos that allegedly showcase Nokia's upcoming Android powered device, the Nokia C1.

You'll notice right away that the C1 very much resembles Nokia's Android powered tablet, the N1, with the unibody metallic body and rounded corners.  You'll also notice that the C1 sports some super thin bezels along the side, something we always love to see.  We can also clearly see that the device is indeed running Android and it will utilize on screen buttons rather than physical or capacitive buttons.

While we don't have any concrete information from Nokia, mobilissimo's source claims that the device will sport a 5″ 1080p display and will be powered by an Intel chip.  They also claim that it will launch with Android 6.0 Marshmallow which means this device probably won't be hitting the market for a little while now.

What do you guys think of Nokia's upcoming Android handset?  Have they captured your attention?

Android Wear Mini Launcher Developer Sells The App To A New Dev

Posted: 07 Sep 2015 07:54 AM PDT

image (1)Wear Mini Launcher was one of the favorite tools in the opening months of Android Wear. Back when the platform's utility was somewhat limited, it was the best way to manually start a Wear app. Of course that utility has become somewhat redundant now that Wear has been updated with an integrated launcher. Even so, the gesture activation function still makes Wear Mini Launcher one of the easiest ways to quickly activate a Wear app without using voice control.
